Hey all 1.7 is out. I’m hard at work moving ALOT of behind the scenes stuff around including a new host server. The forums are there, but kind of hidden until i fix it. still having some growing pains. However the server IS up and ready for some people to start mining.
Edit: Finally fixed the forums!
According to the every helpful and equally sweet SolarFlare, 1.7 will be dropping on Friday! (Fingers crossed) However it is a map breaking update. Previous maps will not work because of all the new biomes and things changing, so Bukkit will probably take a week or so to work. In the meantime, we will be able to fiddle around on a fresh brand new map <3
According to our mighty leader, HypnoTherapist, “We will likely have a temp map until Bukkit is working, and it may take a while to get mods again. However, there’s lots to look forward to once we get Bukkit installed, including a survival map, an RP/towny map with Supernatural abilities and a creative map. PLUS we will have the modded server up soon.”
He goes on to reiterate what I mentioned earlier, how this update is a HUGE one code-wise, and a game changer. or those wanting to grab the snapshot to take a peek for yourselves, follow this link that outlines the update and bug fixes, at the bottom of the post is a link to the 1.7 jar!! This link right here!!!
Stay Crafty! AND GET PUMPED!
My dearest crafty darlings, I have some bad news, and some good news. As per usual, I will give you all the bad news first, so here goes. We had an unusual incident with a player using a hacked client, (someone new to the server, so dont be suspicious of our friends) and unfortunately the damage caused is pretty much irreparable. This incident has forced Hypno to change maps before we intended to. We were going to wait until 1.7 dropped so we would have a fresh new start with new biomes and all the other goodies coming with the update, but that is still 2 months away apparently. Yes, I know, all that hard work, all those buildings, and cities, and projects are gone. Its harsh to say there is nothing we could do but its true. However, please do not be mad. Good news has arrived!
The good news is that we were able to upload an older map!!! 1.2.3 was a fun map experience, and though we no longer use some of the plugins that we were using with this particular map, the map itself is an adventure to explore. There are tonnes of pre-built shops, and free houses, and a rail that already travels to a few different areas, as well as a sewer system. This map was when jungles first hit, and its spawn was built, I believe by Iron Horse.
Dont despair friends!! Let the admins try to handle what has gone on over the past few days, relax, explore, and discover old haunts from players long gone <3 We wait with bated breath for things to be resolved, and for the new update to drop! Dont be afraid to contact one of the admins through steam with any further concerns
Our Own Blockaholics Modpack was updated to 1.1 and the server is too. alot of bugfixes and a couple added mods:
ExtraBees is now Binnie’smods which adds 75 new tree types.
Open preipherals: makes almost any block interfacable with a computer
ImmibisPeripherals: adds rfid cards and magnetic cards and readers.
Long time no work, my lovelies!!! I want to propose a project we can all work on together, as a big blockaholics family Since the addition of horses, alot of servers are doing a western style Wild West type thing. I would like to also do a project to have us all build up spawn together
I would like to have spawn be a street lined with Western style buildings: The Sheriff’s office, Tailor, Tanner (leather worker), General Store, Pharmacy, Saloon, Blacksmith, Jail. We also need a large Stable and Farm, including a Silo and possibly a water mill. At the end of the street, we will have a Tran Station, with a train built for display, and many rails.
For those concerned about current spawn, everything will still be there. This is being built in the desert RIGHT beside current spawn, and will be connected via Mastex’s rail system.
Once IronHorse and I are finished with the layout, we will assign players to buildings and I will try my best to supply examples and help with what I can Be patient, we will all be involved! Message me online or in game with any further questions!
